How did you stay true to the Herschel brand and aesthetic while incorporating those elements that were unmistakably Star Wars?

Jon Warren: When you think of Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and the stormtroopers, you immediately envision the distinctive gear they wear, which was a perfect jumping-off point for the collection. When we began designing the line, we imagined what each character might use if they carried Herschel and pulled specific styles from our product range for each of them, so every set of bags is completely unique. A lot of us at Herschel are huge Star Wars fans. As kids, we would obsess over all of the different movie details, play with the action figures, and role-play these iconic characters so we had a lifetime of imagination to work off of.

At Baggins, we're a bunch of nerds. As you can imagine, we were absolutely dying to see the bags when they arrived. We weren’t disappointed, and we’re going to discuss each bag in detail, read on!


Herschel Little America Star Wars 600D Poly Darth Vader

When we think of Star Wars, Darth Vader is one of the first characters to come to mind. It makes sense that this character would be featured in one of the most iconic Herschel bag silhouettes, The Little America. This bag features a pinstripe body with solid black panels, drawing influence from Vader's iconic suit. It also has bright red rubber accents, pulling in the colour of his lightsaber. The bag has a branded red satin liner created specifically for this collection. Finally, this style features a built-in rain cover to pull over the bag, with the empire logo emblazoned on a reflective patch. 


Herschel Classic XL Star Wars 600D Poly Boba Fett

As you can guess, each bag draws from the characters' costumes. This bag features a geometric pattern that evokes the angular nature of the bounty hunters’ armor. We can sense the worn nature of the metal from all Boba Fett's many battles. The military colour combination is very much something we associate with the Mandalorian. The Classic XL is a large volume bag with water bottle pockets and a front zipper pouch. This bag has a built-in rain cover featuring the Boba Fett logo.


Herschel Miller Backpack Star Wars 600D Poly Stormtroopers

By far the easiest bag to recognize from the collection, this bright white bag features the stormtrooper chest panel on the front pocket. You can also see hints of black to mimic the black on their uniforms, and a blue satin interior meant to be a nod to the air filtration systems on their helmets. The Miller bag has straps on the top making it easier to carry around, and a smaller pocket on the front of the larger front pouch. It also has a water bottle pocket and can fit up to a 15” laptop. All these nooks and crannies make it easy to organize carry all your trooper gear around!


For the second launch in the Star Wars collaboration, we see Herschel pulling inspiration from the massive hit TV show The Mandalorian, this collection has two offerings; a Little America and Classic XL.



Herschel Star Wars Little America Mandalorian

Inspired by the titular character of the Disney+ show, the Herschel Star Wars Little America Mandalorian is a tactical-looking backpack. Featuring robust clips in place of the traditional magnet snaps, the grey, green and brown pattern is inspired by the Mando's armor. The liner features a black silky Mandalorian emblem pattern. The Little America has a 15” laptop sleeve, padded shoulder straps and back, front organization pouch, and utility clips along the straps for easy access to key items.


Herschel Star Wars Classic XL The Child

It may have taken two seasons to finally learn the name of the child, but this bag is simply named, "The Child". Drawing inspiration from his pod, it has a light canvas outer featuring cream, beige and grey panels, and a utility strap down the middle. Stay organized with a front pouch, a water bottle pocket on the side, and a fun and bright Baby Yoda/Grogu print silk liner.
